He asked us to sit for one minute with our eyes closed, and to picture Him after first looking at Him. Afterwards He asked what happened. Francis said, “It comes and goes." Baba replied, "Because you come and go! I am there always."

 

"Do you know how St. Francis loved Jesus and became one with Him? He loved Him as Jesus ought to be loved; but in Francis' group there was one who was a glutton. Juniper loved Francis most, though he did not sit in meditation or think of anything. He gave more trouble to Francis than anyone, yet he loved Francis dearly. When we love from the bottom of our hearts we give all our good and bad, even our trouble; the lover gives everything and demands nothing. I give everything and demand nothing in return. Love me like that and Baba is your slave. Even if you can't do that, don't worry. As long as you are Mine, you need not worry. You are Mine, that is why I have drawn you such long distances. If you can't picture Me, don't worry; if you don't love Me, don't worry: I love you. At midnight on the 24th, don't force, be natural, keep calm; don't sit likeYogis.

My thinking is not just thinking: the whole burden is upon Me."

 

He inquired about the health of each individual, as usual. "You must all be fit for the two days of the meeting. Dear Will," he went on, "I call you My archangel, and you are very devoted to Me, and I love you intensely; but I can not understand your saying every day 'I am better today.'" Will explains it means he sleeps better every night. To others Baba said, "I do not believe you when you say you are very well."
